Denton Wilde Sapte has announced the formation of a new intellectual property (IP) group.
The six-partner group will officially begin work on 1 May. It will act as part of the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) department. The team intends to build on the IP work the firm has handled in the past six months, which attracted clients such as NBC, Avon and Marks & Spencer.
Led by partner Simon Levine, the group will undertake both contentious and non-contentious work. Levine says: "This development is a mark of the quality and volume of work that the IP lawyers have enjoyed since the merger. It is a client-led initiative and it will improve the service that we are able to offer.
"The new group will concentrate our collective experience and expertise into one cohesive team. I anticipate that we will continue to attract new clients while attracting work from within the firm, including insolvency, corporate and banking, as well as our traditional TMT sectors."
